So I did a search on the forum and could not find anything one this. In my Google news feed this morning was a thread on reddit about a new self hosting program that is easier then Own/Next Cloud and prettier. Was curious if anybody has tried this new program out and what your thoughts are.

Downside that isn't mentioned here, it's only free for three users then it's got a tiered pricing structure fro 5 users that is $199.

Thank you Mr. N. I just don't see any benefit over owncloud/nexcloud. It also ties into a MySQL database, like its brethren....

I use filerun. Its beautiful and easier (in my opinion) to administer. I use the free version with 3 licenses. I currently having it running in a windows 10 x64 VM with WAMP installed (Windows Apache MySQL PHP5 server). File run was super easy to install.

 

I really like the ability to logon as the admin and change each users folder on the fly. With nextcloud the storage folder is statically set and each user gets a subfolder created within this. FileRun allows you to create or select a folder from a completely different drive or even UNC path (provided you have the right permissions set). You can even go in and easily change the folder of an existing user as/if needed. NextCloud might be capable of the same thing, but I've found no obvious way of doing this without using the command line.

 

for example:

I can create a new user and point his/her default folder at the "www" directory of my webserver (self hosted). Now when I logon as this user I can upload, download and make changes to my website without the need for an FTP server. I can even open the pages and edit the HTML all in the same interface using a text editor. 

 

Doing the above with NextCloud would set the "www" directory as a default for all of the users. I do not want this for all my users. Please correct me if I am wrong.

Has anyone tried the official docker-version of FileRun on unraid? I am quite new to unraid and also don't have much experience with docker which is why I am a little concerned of installing somethin that is not part of the Community Applications.

 

However, FileRun ist well nice and also doesn't really cost anything for private users - even with more than three users:

It would be marvellous if anyone accomodated a docker template for beginners like me...
